  • Beschreibung


    We are Tom, Nette, Lara (and many others!) a group of friends that want to change the world and who's passion is to create and build. Since few months we are building a music cafe together!! Tom is a 24 yo engineer, Nette a great musician and artist, Lara is a student organic farming. We want to build the cafe as ecologic as possible, so the cafe is build mostly by second-hand materials :D

    The cafe is a cooperation, which means we work together with lots of interesting people who want to contribute to this project! We are striving for a better world, by creating spaces where people get inspired and motivated for their ideas and projects.

    Before, Tom was reconstructing a boat. Now it is finished, big thanks to all volunteers! And the boat is now floating around peacefully at the harbour.

    Currently we are demolishing the building! So if you want to do (de)construction work, this is the place to be!
